    • Bean and Rice Crockpot Soup

      1 can white kidney beans
      1 can lima beans
      1 can black-eyed peas
      1 can diced tomatoes and chilis
      1 large carrot, chopped
      1 yellow onion, diced
      1/4 cup fresh Italian parsley, finely chopped
      1 cup rice, rinsed well in cold water to lose some of the starch
      1 bay leaf
      3-4 cloves of garlic, minced
      Pinch of cayenne
      1 Tbs olive oil
      Fresh ground black pepper and Celtic sea salt to taste

      Add olive to bottom of crockpot. Turn on high. Add onions and bayleaf and let simmer for ten minutes, or until onions turn translucent. Add garlic and stir until you smell cooked garlic aroma (you do not want the garlic to brown).

      Add parsley, pinch of cayenne. Pour in can of tomatoes and chilis to stop the garlic from cooking.

      Rinse the three cans of beans well in a sieve and add to crockpot.

      Add carrots.

      Add water until all ingredients are covered. Cover and cook on high all day.

      Now salt and pepper to taste. Fresh thyme is also nice.

      Twenty minutes before serving, add cup of rice to crockpot. Turn on low and cover again.

      Love it
